selena's growing post

3.Which fraction is bigger? 1/2 + 1/6 + 1/4 + 7/12. 1/4 + 7/12 is bigger cause 50 is bigger then 40

1/2 + 1/6 is like 30 +10 = 40 so that is what i did so 1/2 is 30 min and 1/6 is 10 and 30 min +10 min = 40 min

1/4 = 15 min and 7/12 = 35 mins so + togeather and its 50 mins.

15 min + 35 min = 50 min

4. Find your picture of your final project "The Bike Race Fundraiser" at flickr

Divided every stop you make by 60 and it all stops at the end of the race.

6. Do a google search for fraction games. Find a good site and write a review of the game. Tell everyone what is good about this site. You also need to create a link to the site.
http://www.funbrain.com/brain/MathBrain/MathBrain.html this the website to a game cause there is a hole bunch of different games on here and you can learn something from here.

7. Go back to your picture of the bike race. Tell us all about how you calculated the Km positions at a twelfth, sixth and a third. did you see any patterns?

we went 3 divided by 60 and it equals to 20 and then 6 divided by 60 it equals 10 and 12 divided by 60.

8. What are 2 different ways to find a quarter and 3/4 of a number. Use one of the following 16, 22, or 110.

9) Write a fraction question and answer it. It has to be a question like one you have had on a test. You may answer it in pictorial or word form.

which is bigger 1/2 + 1/4 or 7/12 + 1/5

1/2 is 30 min and 1/4 is 15min

so 30 min +15 = 45 min and this also is the answer to numder 8.

7/12 + 1/5 = 47
7/12 is 35 min and 1/5 is 12 min
so 35 min + 12 min = 47 min
